We have stayed for 6 nights at Friday's. Second time since 2005. Really a perfect beach resort with outstanding friendly staff. The atmosphere is perfect for a luxury vacation. Just a 15 minute beach walk to the busy part of the island. Very good food (Italian cook), quiet rooms with ocean view in native style. Swimming pool size is a little poor but the just enough. Not the cheapest resort, but definitely worth it!

Room Tip: take a (high) room close to the beach (premier)

In our opinion, there is no other place in Boracay that offers the best privacy with the rustic atmosphere. Their personnel were just the most corteous you can find. You can see that the employees like working there. This is a testament to the way the place is run. We recommend highly without reservation. Our family will drop everything right now and turn around and stay at Fridays again!

Room Tip: Personally, we liked were we stay, not necessarily the premium rooms with a view. We stayed at the...

We have a nice experience in Fridays Resort for 4 days. The reception gave us warm and considerate service. Superior room is terrible. Luxury room is nice. All A/C noise is big. Breakfast is boring. Beach is perfect!

Room Tip: Superior room is terrible. Luxury room is nice.

The location is truly fantastic. This is the best location on the island. I can’t find the words to describe how perfect the beachfront is. I love the Filipino setting. The food was great. The hotel service was excellent. All of the staffs were always smiling, very friendly, helpful and attentive to the guest needs. That’s what I can call service with the extra mile. We really had fun. Our vacation was really worth it. We will definitely go back at Fridays. I highly recommend Fridays.

Room Tip: Premiere Beach View Rooms are large and has the perfect view.

Was here already quite often and still like it like the first time.
Here is the place to relax, nowadays I even dont go anymore to Boat Station 2 in the evening too many People for me, so I enjoy it here in Station 1.
I love the staff, the Food is better then one year before (new Chef from Italy) and the sunset is the best of the whole Island.
Will come back next year.

Its by far the best location on the island where you can truly disconnect and relax. The setting and beachfront is stunning, water in the sea is more blue that I have seen in any other part of the world, sun beds are comfortable and food and drinks are tasty and very reasonably priced.

When you stay there, look for Jojo - he'll take the best care of you.

Truly amazing hotel and overall experience. If I could, I would go back tomorrow. Highly recommended.

We stayed at Fridays in April and would definitely return. The hotel is traditional style, the beachfront is postcard perfect, photos just can't do it justice. Staff were friendly, the guys in the bar/beachfront particuarly, I had plenty of GoGo Coconut cocktails in happy hour so spent a lot of time on the beachfront and their service was perfect!
The beachfront buffet while pricey was worth it, the show was entertaining and the food was the best I had on the island during our stay.
We chose the Premier Suite and yep, there is a lot of stairs to get there, but the room is huge and was worth the effort to get up there, the view was amazing!
All up Fridays definitely has the best beach out of all the resorts we walked past. It's quieter, perfect clear water and when the tide is in there is still a lot of beach front, unlike some further up the beach. I hope to go back, slice of paradise.

Room Tip: Premier Suite - A lot of stairs but the rooms are beautiful and the view amazing.
